Inside Out

I heard this song when I first woke this morning. Though I’m not sure how, exactly, that was possible, since the house was completely silent when I put my feet on the floor. Maybe that was what allowed the song to seep into my awareness. Later in the day, I found the song on my computer and listened to it a few times, to sorta get my fill. Now that I’m writing about it I am listening to it again and it still holds the attraction I had for it the first time I ever heard it… and when it ran through my mind this morning. This is “Inside Out” by Sara Bareilles:

I’ve been winding
Down the same road for days
I’ve seen the coastline
Going both ways
Some days are perfect
And some simply could not get worse
Some days it’s all worth it
And some days this life is nothing but a curse

And I wonder who will break first

I am small
I feel like no more than nothing at all
But when I lose sight of daylight
And my darkness falls
I’ll be strong
And if not now it won’t be long
From when I lose sight of daylight
And my hands are weak
And my soul is tired
Oh, I’ll give my love from the inside out
From the inside out

Little spirit
Now don’t you desert me now
I know I don’t always hear it
You don’t always speak so loud
And I’m not willing
To simply lay down my soul for this
It may be all that I’m giving
But take my love for what it is

I am small
I feel like no more than nothing at all
But when I lose sight of daylight
And my darkness falls
I’ll be strong
And if not now it won’t be long
From when I lose sight of daylight
And my hands are weak and my soul is tired
Oh, I’ll give my love from the inside out

Take your best shot
Here I stand, heart in hand
And fearless I’m not
But I am what I am
And I know what I’m not
And I know enough to know it’s never
Gonna be much more than weather
You can’t drive me away
When it’s only rain
On the inside
It’s only rain
From the inside
It’s only rain
From the inside
It’s only rain
From the inside
From the inside out
I am small
From the inside out
I am small
